 Jehangir Overview  

Established in 1946 the Jehangir Hospital today stands as an institution renowned for the medical excellence and dedication of its consultants and the care and compassion of its staff.

Sir Cowasji Jehangir and Lady Hirabai Jehangir, who founded the Jehangir Hospital, invited Dr. Eduljee H. Coyaji to start a Nursing Home that would offer high quality and personalized care at affordable prices. Started with just a few beds, on the 6th of February 1946, it became the city’s first private hospital.

In 1953, The Nursing Home was registered and run as a Public Charitable Trust, headed by Sir Cowasji Jehangir and an eminent board of trustees. After his demise in October 1962, his wife, Lady Hirabai Cowasji Jehangir presided over the Board.
Soon the Jehangir Nursing Home increased to a 60-bed hospital and additional facilities were added to provide better care and more patient convenience. These include the Kitchen, to provide nutritious food to the patients, a full-fledged Linen Department and a full-fledged Nursing Department. From the mid to late fifties the bed strength and facilities had to be continuously increased to keep pace with patient demand.

Sir Hirji Jehangir became Chairman of the Board of Trustees after the demise of Lady Hirabai Cowasji Jehangir in 1976. As he later wished to be relieved of his duties, his elder son, Mr. Jehangir H. C. Jehangir, later Sir Cowasji Jehangir, Fourth Baronet, became the Chairman in June 1988 and continues ably with this responsibility to date.
